Spark innovation and create technology solutions for the benefit of the organization and its members.

Join the Order of the Arrow for the 2017 OA Hackathon. We are partnering with Intel Technologies to propel the OA into the 21st century. Arrowmen will work side-by-side with Intel engineers to revamp the LodgeMaster system, the OA app, and much more.

We are inviting all Arrowmen regardless of programming experience to #HackOA with us. This event will also provide Arrowmen with in-practice leadership development opportunities. Both tech-centric and non-programmers alike will walk out of this event with a more robust understanding of programming while improving connectivity and technology in the Order of the Arrow.
